Description & Technical Information
-
The Aux Cras vineyard is very well located. It is South-East oriented at an altitude of 260 m on a rather steep slope.
The soil is not very deep, it is very stony (explaining its name: Cras = formerly a quarry). Destemmed grapes ferment in vats during 3 to 4 weeks. Aging takes place in oak barrels produced by our cooperage Cadus during 18 months.

Weather: 2015 has been drawn to comparisons to the excellent 2005. A wet winter was needed to replenish the soils that had been left dry from the previous hot, dry summer. Patches of rain throughout the year ensured a freshness in the grapes. The nights were hot in late June and July and as a result saw some fruits fall off the bunches leading to lower yields. The grape structure had thick skins which mean ripe tannins and polyphenols.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Beaune Cras
Grape Varities: 100% Pinor Noir
Drink: Now to 2029

Tasting Note: Typically muted but now after a few years, the flavours are bold. Dark cherry and black fruit on the palate with serious concentration. Quite dry without being astringent but will be great with food in the medium term.
